Perfection. – Richard Remiard exceeded my expectations in every way.
Each person we worked with was beyond wonderful and only added to the excitement of the wedding planning experience. I found the team at Richard Remiard to be extremely patient, professional, and exceptionally creative. Richard Remiard's team took the time to listen to my vision and made it a reality. Their outstanding collection of vases and candle holders is spectacular. This combined with the inspired artists at Richard Remiard simplifies the planning process – irrespective of whether you have a detailed concept for your event or no idea where to begin.
I was made to feel a top priority at all times and believe that this is the standard of service provided at Richard Remiard. I can’t thank Taylor and Brandt enough for putting together the most exquisite arrangements for my special day. I am still overwhelmed by how seamlessly everything came together, your flawless work and the stunning end result.
Thank you for all of your hard work and for helping to make such an important day perfection down to the last rose peddle.
I let 'em run with it to good results – I'm a guy and know nothing of flowers. Heading into my wedding, it was all a waste of money to me at first. But I was left with the planing and I in turn handing the reins over to Richard Remiard and his staff.
They made most of the decisions, understanding that I wanted to be very hands off. They explained things really well and gave me several "dumbed down" options and how they would play out.
The end result was pretty breathtaking and helped make it a truly memorable day. The wife loved it and many people expressed how beautiful things were. One aunt said it was tacky, but hey, you can't please everyone I guess. We liked it and that's what was important.
would highly recommend these guys!
Skeptical at first but WOWED – Richard and his crew are excellent. I could not BELIEVE how beautiful the arrangements were. They pulled off magic on my special day. I was definitely unsure when I walked in the door, but they wowed me right off the bat. Thank you.
THE BEST! – We recently used Richard Remiard for our wedding and have to say everything was done to perfection. The level of professional attention to detail and helping us achieve our vision was unbelievable. From the initial meeting to frequent follow ups duing the six month period up to our wedding, Richard and his staff were always available and went out of their way to guide us through the process.
We would recommend Richard Remiard Event Design without reservation
Awful! – I was so excited to meet with Richard because the flowers are on his website are beautiful. Within 15 minutes from the start of the appointment, I really was tempted to just get up and leave in the middle of the appointment because I couldn't take anymore.
Richard is pushy, pretentious and judgmental. As a vendor, he should be working with the bride to make sure she is happy with her flowers, not pushing what he thinks everyone should have. He asked me I if I wanted to have flowers for the moms at the wedding and when I told him I did, he said, "REALLY?????????" Like I just told him I wanted him to design my flowers from what he could find in a trash heap. He then told me that giving flowers to the mothers is something that he thinks of when he thinks of "suburban weddings in the country", but not "here in the city". My mother would be so offended to not be given flowers. But I am sure Richard would not be concerned with that since he himself behaves so offensively. Every wedding I have ever been to, the mothers have always had flowers. Where has this guy been?? Oh, it is probably because I am so tacky, it makes sense that all my friends and family would be tacky, too.....of course! He continued to push to tell me that the wedding attendants should not be sitting at the table with my fiance and me. Excuse me, I did not come here for your advice about anything other than flowers, dude. You are not my mom. How conceited do you have to be to just throw your opinions out there in the pushiest, most judgmental way possible about things that have NOTHING to do with the flowers?
I have obviously already picked my venue, which he then began arguing about me with in regards to where the place card table is set up and how the lighting in the room is. This is after I have already discussed it with the wedding planner at the reception site. He also told me I could not have a large place card table centerpiece because my venue is "SO small". My venue holds 300 people for sit down receptions. Is this guy just trying to make people feel badly about themselves? Or is he on crack? Then I had a few specific requirements due to cultural considerations and he told me I was wrong. This is about a culture he he doesn't belong to. He staff walking by even chimed in that he was wrong..I was so offended. That was the last straw. So I just started saying "great, yes!" to whatever he suggested so I could get the eff out of there.
Richard Remiard is a mess. The guy seriously has some personal issues and needs to get them worked out within himself before he should ever try working with people. All my other vendors have been excited for my event and have worked with me to make sure I am happy about what is going on. I haven't even gotten his proposal back and I could not care less. I would never recommend this man to anyone. His staff all seemed very nice and I feel badly for them for having to work with such a pushy egomaniac. I could not stand to be around him for an hour, I don't know how they do it day in and day out. My money, no matter how pathetic he probably thinks my budget is, will be going elsewhere!
